Office for Students With Disabilities

The Office for Students With Disabilities (OSD) program provides support services, specialized instruction, and educational accommodations to students with disabilities so that they can participate as fully and benefit as equitably from the college experience as their non-disabled peers.  A Student Educational Contract (SEC) is developed for each student which links student's goals, curriculum program, and academic accommodations to his/her specific disability related educational limitation.

The Office for Students With Disabilities encourages students to be as independent and self-reliant as possible. We work closely with each student to assess their needs and provide those support services and accommodations that directly address a student's functional limitations as a result of their disability.

Mission

The mission of the Office for Students With Disabilities (OSD) Program is to provide students with disabilities equal access to education by offering quality support services that directly relate to a student’s limitations as a result of their disability. The OSD Program assists students with their understanding and acceptance of their limitations as a result of their disability and also promotes and fosters independence by teaching students to articulate their needs to AVC instructors and staff. Moreover the OSD Program is committed to the academic success and personal growth of all students with disabilities at AVC.
